10/15/15 – Budget Workshop Meeting Minutes

OCTOBER 15, 2015

The Town of Spider Lake Budget Workshop meeting was called to order by Town Chair Hucker at 4:00 PM. Present were Hucker, Brandt, McGuiness, Cerman, Huot, Clerk Ferda, Treasurer Overman and Fire Chief D. Brandt.

Discussion was held regarding a new copier, new printers, new carpet for the town hall, fenders for the grader, blower for the mower and possible road projects for 2016. Fire Chief Brandt asked that any surplus left in the 2015 fire budget be allocated to Capital Outlay-Fire for the purchase of new pagers and turnout gear.

The complete 2016 budget compiled to date was reviewed by the Board and changed where necessary. With an application of $102,389.00 from surplus, the proposed 2015 levy needed to balance the 2016 budget is $263,329.00 which is the maximum levy allowed by the state for 2015.

Motion was made by McGuiness and 2nd by Huot to approve the proposed 2016 budget as amended at this budget workshop. All in favor. Motion carried.

The board did not convene an executive session.

Item #4 on the agenda (possible action by the town board to adopt a resolution supporting a percentage increase in the allowable 2015 levy) was not acted upon as the 2015 levy does not need to be increased beyond what is proposed to balance the 2016 budget.

Motion to adjourn was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness. All in favor. Motion carried.

Christine Ferda
Town Clerk
